hi there guys normally am a builder of armour but i wanted to do a dio with a crashed plane shot down being passed by armour ( 1/35 ) ino theres no planes in 1/35 but ive read of people using 1/32 as comparable..

i was wondering where abouts did bf 109 k4 serve ? Western front? or Eastern front? would anyone know of a camo scheme that would be easy to do for it...?

cheers in advance

Hi , you can use 1/32 scale aircraft with your 1/35 armor . There isn't that much in size difference that will be all that noticable . Not not sure if both fronts used that air frame , but the painting of the camo is easy to do .

Well, the Bf 109 K was used on both fronts. However, notice that it is a late war aircraft and should therefore also be with late war armour. So no Pz. I and IIs rumbling past a wrecked Bf 109 K.

Camouflage and markings you can see HERE

Hope this helps - good luck and remeber to share your diorama with us

You might get hooked on those fly-thingies if you are not careful.

1/48 might work better for you. 1/32 Me 109s will take up some space in a diorama. There are more 1/48 aircraft to chose from. You might find something that will fit better.

Here are some pictures that might help you anthony.
Here is a picture of one that was shot down and then moved to a museum: www.taphilo.com/JG26/Me-109-E-3.JPG
This one was shot down and "landed" in a field.
Good luck with the Dio
